The beautiful 'Concertino for Cor Anglais and Orchestra' by Gaetano Donizetti headlines our final concert for the year. We are grateful to welcome back our soloist for this postponed performance after Covid interruptions earlier in the year.

Another delayed performance (from last year's disrupted schedule) is the 'Overture in D Minor' by German romantic composer Emilie Mayer, which is the fourth of her more than 15 concert overtures.

'The Celestial Gate of Praise' is an early work by NZ composer David Hamilton, recently revised and re-orchestrated for Leys Orchestra. Influences of the Armenian/American composer Alan Hovhanes are apparent in this youthful piece, which we premiered earlier this year in Warkworth.

The programme also includes Schubert's Entr'acte from 'Rosamund', Mozart's 'Mauerische Trauermusik', the "surprise" movement from Haydn's 'Symphony No. 94', plus music by Pechotsch and Jarnefelt.

Join us as we celebrate the service of two of our long serving members, Gordon Smith and Jan Leask, who have played with the orchestra for a total of more than 50 years.

Free admission.
